    I recently had my W850i that was locked and branded on oragne unlocked at my local phone shop. All worked fine but I hated the stupid orange load logos and branding, so I recided to follow this guide:


    My only problem is now after a sucessful debranding / flashing it loads with Sony Ericson screens but the phone always says "please insert correct sim card".

    Has flashing the phone re-locked it on orange?

    Did I select the wrong CDA (Central Europe Generic)?

    How do I get it to accept my Tesco Mobile sim card (which as I understand uses 02 network).

    Any help would be MASSIVLY appreciated, this is as much a learning excersise for me as saving money walking down to the shop and paying some one else.

    Thankyou, for this great forum and any replies!

    Your local shop guy has patch unlocked it.
    So if you flash the phone will get locked.
